Do you qualify to become a Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator?
There are two paths to qualify.
1. CERTIFIED Childbirth Educators, Doulas and Prenatal Yoga Instructors, or (see #2)
A. Certified Childbirth Educator – see list of approved CBE Certifications at bottom of page
B. Certified Doula – training must have had strong childbirth ed component such as DONA, CBI & CAPPA.
C. Registered RYPT Prenatal Yoga Instructor
If you are certified you only need one document when you register – Upload a scan or photo of your Certificate from one of these certifying bodies. That’s it – simply upload and then register.
2. NON CERTIFIED Childbirth Educators
Show adequate experience instead of certification
- Resume: Upload resume including your birth education experience and birth related education. Show a certain way that you teach classes. This might be one of the following three options.
a. Past certification with a listed organization. Upload a jpg or pdf file with image of certificate.
b. A brief letter from a supervisor validating that you have taught classes as a childbirth educator at their hospital, yoga center, agency or business.
c. If you can show me how you are teaching parents in another way, you can propose that method and I’ll consider accepting it.
What is not accepted: a website or social media page without further clarity that you are teaching classes or one-to-one sessions.
I would recommend that midwives who don’t teach classes or Centering Pregnancy, please look to the Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner Workshops and follow that course to get listed and skills that will be valuable for the type of prenatal education given in the prenatal appointment. Doulas may also join bodyworkers in those trainings.
Two full-day Spinning Babies® Workshops
We ask you take two of our workshops before coming to let the paradigm and the explanations settle and weave into your work. One of these can be taken the day immediately before the SpBCPE Training offered in the same venue.
